People, Flora and Fauna of the Holy Land is a unique and intense academic summer program that allows its students to discover the ecological and social diversity of the Holy Land through a learning-by-traveling approach. The geographic location of the program – a crossroad between Asia, Europe, and Africa – makes the Holy Land a fascinating international laboratory for social and scientific research. Guided by faculty and staff, students will study while traveling four different regions: the Golan Heights, the Galilee, the Center of Israel, and the South. The program welcomes undergraduate as well as graduate students.
